“It is a denial of Justice not to stretch out a helping hand to the fallen that is the common right of humanity.”
– Seneca the Elder, Roman Philosopher
The word “Arpann” is a Hindi word, meaning “to give” or what we call “Dāna”. Mythologically, Arpann or the giving deeds has been regarded as holy and the very foundation of the civilization. The Vedas, Upanishads, Purans, Smritis, Quran, Bible, and many other religious texts affirm great worth on Dāna. Ramcharitmanas compares Dāna with an axe in the battle of life. As you slay enemies with a battle axe, so slay sins and hardships with Dāna. Anciently and even now charity occupies a great importance and holds an efficacy to accord basic necessities to needy ones.
India is the home of world’s one-fourth people who sleep empty bellied. There are numerous people who subsist in chilling winters in want of woolens. The world is flooded with can of worms, and AbhyutthÃnam attempts to pull the sufferers out from the inferno of their present life. The existence of billions of starving, poor, unclothed, homeless and destitute people points to the need of our project “Arpann”. These people are like the broken thread of the society. We believe that preservation of human existence is the first step of the ladder of human development.
This project aims to accord the needy people with the essential necessities of living like “Food to Hungry”, “Water to Thirsty”, “Cloth to Naked”, “Pen and Paper to one who wants to study”, “Guidance to one who is Lost”, etc.
Arpann focuses on assisting needy people to carry out their survival at ease as we consider that everybody is bestowed with right to live a dignified life. Arpann eventually seeks to facilitate AbhyutthÃnam in achieving its paramount goal of uplifting society.
